    "Michael Greif’s production feels cozier, more accessible and less startling than you may remember."
    Ben Brantley for New York Times

    "It's great to see "Angels" fly so high and so potently again."
    Joe Dziemianowicz for New York Daily News

    "The work's delirious genius shines through only intermittently in the uneven off-Broadway revival."
    Elisabeth Vincentelli for New York Post

    "Staged with a sympathetic but uneven hand by Michael Greif."
    Jeremy Gerard for Bloomberg

    "Despite Mike Nichols' fine film version, the only way to experience the work's full impact is in its original home: the theater."
    Erik Haagensen for Back Stage

    "Ambitious, vibrant revival."
    Robert Feldberg for The Record

    "Even in this cramped, cluttered version, Angels has the power to challenge, enlighten and amaze you."
    David Cote for Time Out New York

    "Somewhat disappointing as well is director Michael Greif's production, which appears curiously muted in spite of several excellent performances and a few others not so satisfying."
    Michael Sommers for Newsroom Jersey

    "This revival, superbly directed by Michael Greif, nonetheless loses nothing in terms of theatrical or emotional impact."
    Frank Scheck for Hollywood Reporter

    "This production scores its most resounding success in presenting us with two characters so irresistibly appealing that their unhappy romance is nothing less than a soul-crushing tragedy."
    Marilyn Stasio for Variety
